I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Stella, Stella.....Stanley Kowalski's Favorite Dessert

If you are ever invited to one of those everyone bring a dish type gatherings, volunteer to bring dessert. You will be the star of the party with this one and you better bring copies of the recipe with you because everyone will be asking you for it, that’s how I got it!
The hot pudding soaking into the crunchy almond toast creates a taste and texture that just drives your mouth crazy, you’ll see.

Stella Doro Almond Toast Torte

2 pkgs. of Stella Doro Almond Toast
1 container of Cool Whip
1/2 cup of slivered almonds
1 lg. pkg. of chocolate pudding mix
1 lg. pkg. of vanilla pudding mix

Line the bottom of 9"x13" pan with 1 package almond toast. Cook package vanilla pudding mix, pour hot over toast. Place second package toast on top of vanilla pudding. Cook package chocolate pudding mix and pour hot over 2nd layer of toast. Cool several hours or overnight. Before serving cover with Cool Whip and sprinkle on slivered almonds.

I adore these, but can no longer find them locally. I used to eat them smeared with lemon curd. I was in my early 20s then and could eat stuff like that!

I have to try that lemon curd idea, thanks Mimi.

I like the Stella D'oro on their own... but add all that other yummy stuff to it and WOW! I'm going to have to try this.

Me too Joe, I have been eating the almond and anisette toasts for years.
